Dear children and parents of Class 2 2020-2021,
We are pleased to announce that a gentleman called Mr Priest will be teaching Class 2 in place of Mrs Tasker, until she comes back from her maternity leave. Mr Larden, Mrs Cowlam and myself, interviewed the candidates this morning and Mr Priest was offered the job. Luckily for us, he accepted.
The children will have the chance to meet Mr Priest when he comes into school next week. It is hoped that he will meet the current Year 2 children for a 'getting to know you' session, followed by one for the current Year 3 children.
I hope that all of the children will be able to join us on the school field. More details will follow in due course.
Mrs Crowther has resigned from her position at St. Peter's school. She continues to be employed as the teacher of Class 2 although Miss Blakey is currently covering her absence. Mrs Crowther's contract with the school will end on 31st August 2020.
Islam experience afternoon.
We have been so fortunate to have had Mrs Khalid join us to share her Muslim faith and tell tell about the main festivals Muslims celebrate. We found out about the five pillars of Islam, Ramadam, Ed ul fitr and Ed ul Adha. The children were especially inquisitive about Ramadam and how disciplined Muslims have to be in order to fast and the reasons why they do this. As we have been learning about Christian baptism in our current R.E unit, Mrs Khalid also shared with us how Muslims welcome new babies into the faith.
The children especially enjoyed trying some traditional foods that would be eaten during the Ed ul Fitr celebration which included Sevaya Kheer (a milk based pudding) and date biscuits. We has lots of fun and learned so much about the Muslim faith. Thank you Mrs Khalid for giving up your time to come and work with us 😊
